Their Freddy Galvis:
Ike Davis - The former first round pick and 2012 Fantasy Sleeper is not starting the season the way many predicted. He picked up his first hit of the season on Wednesday and he currently is 1-20. That's good for a .050 average and .186 OPS.
Their Danys Baez:
Miguel Batista - It might be time for the 41 year old Batista to call it quits. Sure, he's only pitched 2.1 innings, but he's given up 2 hits and 5 walks in that short time.
Their JD Drew:
All of them. It's the Mets.
What We're Drinking:
Corey - I have plans to plop myself on the couch Saturday afternoon and actually watch a full Phillies game, which can be a rare occasion these days. Since Jon Niese and his gigantic nose is pitching for the Mets, I think I'll head to Wegman's for a sixer of Shoals Pale Ale from Smuttynose Brewing. Delicious! Just hoppy enough so you know you're drinking an American pale ale, but smooth enough to drink the entire sixer without getting that nasty, dry "hop mouth."
Carson - Miller High Life longneck bottles and Yuengling Premium. My buddy from North Carolina is up for the weekend and I have a fridge full fo beer. It will be empty by tomorrow.
What We're Listening To:
Corey - Ryan Bingham and the Dead Horses - We built this blog on beating dead horses, so why not listen to some? The latest album from this band, Junky Star, charted in the top ten of the Billboard Country (2) and Rock (8) charts. Wikipedia describes it as 'Americana.' Okay, whatever. It's good, give it a listen, then obtain the whole album by whatever means necessary.
Carson - TBA
Magic Number Watch:
The Phils are not in first place. :(
Sweep? No, not with this offense. Phils still take two from the already-peaked Mets.
